 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 11 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 5 killed the bastard and survived.
 5 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

Ammochain may seem overpowered, but it's VERY VERY necessary for Ao100. Fighting the hordes of Archviles and Revenants, especially when 2-3 revenants/barons are being revived at a time, necessitates a constant stream of heavy ordinance, and I think that any other build, even shotguns, would run out of ammo with how many non-ammo dropping monsters show up. Also, ammochain lets you use the rest of your inventory to carry med packs, phase devices, and envirosuits, which coming VERY handy.

I mean, groups of 4-5 mancubi/revenants were very commonplace, and archviles were around every corner in every level, so being crazy prepared was a prerequisite to surviving.

(Yeah, I know it's possible to do Ao100 without ammochain, but it sure doesn't seem like it...)

I like that I still get nukes, and that I can just completely bypass levels if I have invincibility going on. Getting to such high levels was neat, but once you hit a certain point, it's just not that useful to level up, since there isn't anything else that can really help you.

Really though, it got really monotonous at the later levels. It was an exciting, turbulent, unpredictable type of monotony, but it was monotony nonetheless.

What I was worried about most was my supply of armor. I had one really good armor, a agility/bulk/power modded red armor, which was my awesome super red, which I relied on mostly. I also had two other bulk and speed modded red armors to supplement my supply. I used every single armor shard I could find to repair my super red, and it pulled me out of alot of tough situations.

Damn barons though, their acid ball attack drains armor strength like crazy. It shaved off like 25% from my super red with every hit, it was crazy to just get hit once and need to repair it.

The various uniques I picked up weren't really useful. The only one I really used were the phaseshift boots. I carried the Onyx armor and hell staff around with me in case of an emergency, but I never used them.

What I'm very grateful for is that I found an advanced plasma rifle, which, as you can see, I modded quite a bit. I couldn't find any power mods for it though, which was very odd. I find a crapload of advanced combat shotguns, which were always a disappointment since I had no intention of using them.

Though, as the difficulty escalates, you learn to grow out of the habit of "Saving globes for when you really need them". Like, say, if things were easier, and I saw a supercharge, I'd go "I'll save it till the end of the level, when I go down", but when you're on level 80, you see that globe and go "GIMME GIMME GIMME! Even if there's nothing killing me right now, there's bound to be something killing me in a couple seconds!". Serious, that stuff never lasted long.

I had a respectable store of Homing Phase Devices, which I used sparingly and only in emergencies. They got me out of QUITE A FEW tight spots that might have ended in tragedy otherwise. however, in the last few levels, I shot them off one after the other to skip straight to the end, which was, ironically, an arachnotron cave. Arachnotron caves are really hard in normal games, but are actually a step-down in difficulty when a normal Ao100 level entails fighting 4-5+ archviles and 5-7+ revenants.

Jesus Christ, that took awhile, I'm glad I have so much free time.

Also, I wish it gave you a better message than "You were killed by something...". It just doesn't seem appropriate considering the epic accomplishment it entails.

Blaster build doesn't need ammo too. But it's really rare.

And Pistol build too doesn't need that much ammo. While your two shots are deadly, and your shoot within a free move, you don't really care about ammo. Only plasma ammo is real problem, because I saw them on lvl 20-25, on the next they strangely disappeared.

well i have a little question:

Does the GCB semi-auto and full-auto modes are affected by ammochain?

because you found grammaton on level 6 maybe it could be usesful in an ammochain run...
look at this and tell me if ammochain is useless on GCB:

Damage:Single: 2d6/2-12, Semi-auto: (1d8)x3/3-24, Full-auto: (1d7)x6/6-42

According to sorear over the Chaosforge IRC channel, any weapon with Alt. Fire: Chainfire works with MAc.

I usually use intuition 2 on Ao100.  Works quite well on sub-nightmare difficulties.  Also, GCB on level 6 is quite nice... I would've been tempted to do a pistol game... plenty of xp to get gunkata. :)
